If CBO and House Budget are blameless, and everything about this budget change occurred in an above-board manner, they seem to have a funny way of going about proving their innocence.
In a Monday report, CBO changed the rules, and violated the law, to make it easier for Congress to pass an Obamacare bailout.
In general, the bill would increase the deficit by $19.1 billion and appropriate more than $60 billion to insurance companies, propping up and entrenching Obamacare rather than repealing it.
To call the inclusion of a $11.5 billion proposal in the president’s budget that no one wants to take credit for a prime example of managerial incompetence would put it mildly.
For several reasons, the proposed bailout appears to trace back to one individual—Andrew Bremberg, head of the White House’s Domestic Policy Council.
The budget proposal means the Trump administration is now actively working to codify not one but two Obamacare bailouts that a Republican Congress denied to the Obama administration.
Of course, Mitch McConnell and Chuck Schumer want to ram the deal through Congress by Thursday evening—because we have to pass the bill to find out what’s in it.
With White House officials promising to work to bail out Obamacare, how can tax reform have ‘essentially repealed’ the behemoth law?
Conservatives should reject the premise that Congress must immediately open the federal piggy bank to replenish the unconstitutional subsidies the Trump administration cut off.
The process for handing health insurers billions of taxpayer dollars to backfill a sinking Obamacare rather than replace it is looking a lot like passing Obamacare itself.
While one could presume Tim Kaine is intentionally deceiving the public to cover up his sweet deal, he could be instead genuinely ignorant of how health insurance works.
The Problem Solvers Caucus proposal amounts to little more than an Obamacare TARP—Turning Against Repeal Promises.
Donald Trump’s son-in-law holds a controlling interest in a company whose primary business is selling Obamacare policies.
